of the administration's decision to delay the employer mandate in health care law and various decisions on immigration and drug law. virginia republican bob goodlatte chairs the committee. we will have live coverage when they start. just a couple of news items on the industry should secretary of state, john kerry is in brussels. he's joining the diplomats around the world in hopes of persuading afghan manners to let troops remain in afghanistan beyond 2014, hamid karzai had signing the status of forces agreement. in washington, "the associated press" that the consumer finance watchdog is expanding its oversight of sallie mae and other companies. a rule issued today by the consumer financial protection bureau extends that agencies supervision to non-companies that have lenders. the cfp be overseas banks and service student loans, but most of the end from the white house, president obama will focus on the benefits of the health care law he will be flying by the white house says have benefited from the overhaul. he will remind american fork discrimination against those with preexisting conditions. we'll
pains to clarify the president's duty is to implement the law in good faith and to exercise reasonable care with the word take care in doing so. the fact is that scholars on both left and right can' concors broadly worded phase to handle with fidelity to all including indeed the constitution. as a legal and practical matter, the president's phase in of the employer mandate and other provisions as well with the job description so is the program for the childhood arrivals. i'm not going to go into that now but the congressman explained why that's true and in my written statement, we do so also. i have to say one quick word about what i know my good friend and frequent partner michael cannon is going to focus on, and that is his theory and he gets a lot of credit for picking it up and marketing it. his theory that the tax credits and subsidies must be available, that they are on the available to americans who have been living in states that have set up their own exchanges. i can't go into detail on this. in the questioning perhaps i will be able to do that, but if there is a few phrases i
follow constitutional law. in the federalist papers number government, what is itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? it went back to refer to the great security against gradual concentration of the civil powers in the same department consists in giving to those who would minister each department and the constitutional means and .otives to resist encroachment the government was set up to specifically prevent this. , i am seeings here, and not only in this administration, but in need radius of mistreating and several administrations, the executive branch is taking for granted that they have exclusive power over issues that they do not. i'm concerned about that and what we do to prevent that. where does this stop? this is my question. we have seen the president and the past presidents, concerning the war powers act, which, i think, have violated the constitution. in this administration, they detained illegal immigrants. they stopped enforcement of drug laws, i know that because i'm a prosecutor and i saw it. he stopped the enforcement of mandatory sentencing and part
new law, which is something that happens under all administrations, it has to happen sometimes for practical reasons. why we are making a big fuss about this as a constitutional matter, is not beyond me. i understand why it is being done. if it sounds like politics, that is what it is. position. >> i have too little time for two little questions. let me start by saying that i generally in many respects agree with professor turley about the growth of the presidency over the last half century or more. i am particularly concerned about the abuse of the war powers by many president and the state secrets doctrine for the enforcement of constitutional rights and a surveillance under bush and obama and the patriot act, warrantless surveillance in the bush administration and things like that. i must say that everything we are talking about today is laughable in my opinion in the context of these problems. i am particularly struck by the overwhelming hypocrisy of the claim that the president in interpreting the law and in refusing to interpret the law in the way that would drive a stake
to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws and they will conclude that neither are they. that is a very dangerous sort of thing where the president to do to wantonly ignore the laws, to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve -. >> thank you, chairman. professor lazarus, made a statement about, at least i invert about this being political, i want to assure you that i left a lucrative law practice to come to congress in 2011 because i continually see the eroding of the constitution. is what protects us. so i'm not here for the pomp and circumstance, for the notoriety or to promote my career. i'm here because i'm concerned about the future of my children and the constitution to want to make that perfectly clear. number two, you may become it, and again, i invert that -- i inferred that the intent, intent wasn't an issue or was an issue in part of the affordable care act. and i don't want to get in to the details of that but i find that interesting that you made intent the issue when the speaker of the house at that time, nancy pel
together. part of that is the practical access to the insurance coverage, which the law, unfortunately, does not guarantee for the small employers. are there planning opportunities? yes. we see small employers trying to use those to avoid compliance with the law? not yet. i think part of the lack of awareness is a little bit of a reaction to the delays that have occurred. believe there have been delays and those delays will continue. for smaller businesses, there is a sentiment that the rules for the larger employers were delayed, which they were until 2015. however, for the smaller businesses they smell many of them on the brunt of the expensive renewals this year. they offer an early renewal option to renew their policy this december and to delay the cost impacts of health reform. invariably they have taken that offer. they have basically kicked the issue down the road for another year. we will hear more about that next fall. it is a matter of the law providing access to coverage with no pre-existing conditions. it is not by any means affordable, even for the small businesses. the sm
from his health care law. he struck a nerve when he talked about the middle class and how many americans are learning. we'll take a look at this with an american who knows what it's like to live that way. first, mike viqueira at the white house >> the facts are beyond dispute. the government sought to highlight the gap between the rich and poof. he was up to two themes. these are themes struck throughout the presidency, first and second term. he talked about the gap between rich and poor and talking about trying to raise the minimum wage. he got behind that, backing a height or legislation and congress that's $0.10 an hour. many states are moving on their own. the president deniably is trying to shore up a political base after a rocky rollout of healthcare.gov. democrats are dispirited. this is the latest in a series of event where the president spoke to the base and what he said was music to the democratic base's years, talking about income despair itty and stronger union, tying the affordable care act into the theme. >> the idea that a child may never escape the poverty becau
to order. as we are all well aware of the health care law acquires businesses that employ 50 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees to offer health insurance or pay an employer mandate penalty for tax. a critical issue is the definition of employee. but equally important is the issue of which and how many employees are attributed to the business. the answer may be simple for one business with a single owner. however when an individual shares ownership of multiple entities or when a business has multiple owners, the answer is less clear. today we will examine the process of determining whether businesses are considered a single or multiple entities under the health care law, which requires business owners to aggregate employees and could suggest the business from the obamacare employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses with 20 or more employees: at least 10% of one or more other businesses. to determine if the threshold of 50 or more employees has been met in these situations the health care law utilizes the interna
the health care law. it's not enough to say they turned in their work sloppy. no, the screaming you hear now is liar, liar pants on fire. it's an escalation of the old refrain the president's not who he says he is. nobody knew him in school, went the donald trump rant. he's not from here. now comes the charge the president's health care law is not on the level. that the president didn't just fail to get it right the first time, he's a liar. and on benghazi, he's something else they say. howard fineman and sam stein are both with "the huffington post" and both msnbc contributors. ted cruz's trail buddy has taken it to new heights. during a hangout yesterday, the texas senator used the issues of benghazi and the affordable care act to accuse the president of something truly sinister. let's listen. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. to me that's one of the most aggravating thing about what's happening in washington these days. particularly about this administration. which is a lack of accountability. and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just d
were just out there pimping ourselves and the law practice the blog would be very different and much less successful. how well it does or doesn't right now really turns on the fact that people don't perceive it as something that's out there trying to sell you something or to develop the some advantage for our law practice and i do think tony raises a really important set of issues that should be discussed and that is, okay, but can you truly have it both ways? can you practice in front of the supreme court, right, and your professional success there depends on your credibility with the justice and at the same time run an institution that is going to truly cover the supreme court? and truly be able to describe it warts and all? and how is it that you navigate that sort of thing if you want to really call yourself a journalistic institution? because that dilemma will repeat itself too potentially. if you're an expert in physickings, if you're an expert in plumbing there are lots of things you can talk about and write about and cover where you don't face the dilemma of really pissing so

to sign into law a five cent gasoline tax increase 31 years ago when a nickel a gallon was real money. a user fee is in fact a different category from a general tax increase. the various groups that score such votes treat user fees differently. as we are attempting to resolve budget differences, there's an opportunity to embrace more transportation resources through user fee mechanisms that will have broad national support and not inspire the same fierce philosophical debate that's plagued and paralyzed our deliberations for years. it has the added benefit of being the fastest way to put hundreds of thousands of people to work at family wage jobs to help boost our flagging economy. i strongly urge my colleagues to take a step back and look at this as a way to crack the code, to meet vast unmet needs of our constituents and stabilize a critical part of our budget. who knows? if we can find a way to thread this particular transportation funding needle, how many additional opportunities are there to solve problems going forward if we can address them? this is what it -- i think what it t

contentious, emotional law when it passed. and i think many of us who work closely with indigenous populations and different triable organizations have found we've gotten much better at communicating with each other about the process. part of the problem is that remains will be swept off and hidden behind closed doors and who knew what went on. we have more interaction with the elders, triable groups, bringing them in to see with a we're doing. i've actually worked in cases where they burn sage or insisted that blessings of those of us doing the analysis occur before and after. being an anthropologist, i'm totally cool with that. it's great. and again, communication. coming from working in human rights cases, as opposed to domestic cases. we tend to work at the medical examiners, you don't see the work we do kind of behind the scenes. when we're on the ground, in these human rights cases, reoften interacting closely with families and relatives. i think those of us that have done that are much more comfortable working with indigenous population and different cultural practices. i think we've dn
